‘The Planes of Creation’
( ( ( ( ( ( ( ) ) ) ) ) ) )
If I were, to draw upon,
The spatial forest breathing . . . . .
Could I bear witness, without seeming,
To be the keeper, on a constant basis?
To the changes taking places,
In those vast ambiguous spaces,
Halation viewed through the forest dense,
Expansive views . . . . .
. . . An immersion sense.
Winds in movement, expansive lines,
Opposing forces > > > < < <
Twice light at times,
Of the day and of the night,
Notations necessarily tight,
To draw, to note, to see again,
The shadows in the Autumn rain,
As if to mark that time again,
Another view . . . . .
. . . But not the same.
The sky is brought to land by line,
Horizon line . . . . . . . . . that is,
But distance makes this scape fragment,
Enough to make perspective jar,
In the wake of rendering far,
Enough to be a merging factor,
Enough to be an engaging actor,
In this scene of fact not fiction,
Augmented by . . . . .
. . . The eye’s conviction.
Realism is in reality,
Through contra-curving light,
The forest floor and line of sight,
Projection waves intense but calm,
Are driven wide . . . . . expanding,
To left and right the vapour moves,
Exhaling as it passes . . . . .
. . . The paper stays in place.
Opposing light transcends the dark,
The air is full of meaning,
The hollow wind shifts and ranges,
A move is on, the view it changes,
Air, it leans one way then other,
Clouds begin transforming sky,
Cumulus shapes billowing high,
Above the ground the air is moving,
Beneath the floor . . . . .
. . . The forest heaves.
Expansive views are out of range,
Falling off the plane of vision,
To see afar is out of focus,
But gentle to the eye,
Pastel shading, spreading shape,
Across the paper foliage,
Memory, ideation bound,
Sits squarely in . . . . .
. . . The ‘Planes of Creation’.
